Orlando Ferrer, Operations Manager, who is responsible for the company's effort to reduce its carbon footprint, said, "In little over a year, we managed to make a real dent in our carbon footprint, save money and improve staff working conditions by implementing the five policies in our IFD Green Policy described on our Green Page."

inFORM's Green Policies are:
  1. Examine our own operations.
  2. Support clean energy legislation
  3. Support use of electronic documents
  4. Promote awareness of energy conservation
  5. Support forest conservation
As part of its fifth IFD Green Policy, the company has selected a number of leading forest conservation organizations that it supports.

Arbor Day Foundation

Forest Stewardship Council

Native Forest Network

The Nature Conservancy (TNC)
newsletter@tnc.org and http://www.nature.org/

The Common Sense Environmental Fund

The Audubon Society

The Wilderness Society

Forster said "More corporations are including sustainable resource efforts in their community responsibility programs. In doing this research, we were happy to see how closely the goals of our clients going paperless coincide with today's efforts to protect threatened forests."

IBM's Eric Riddleberger, business strategy leader of IBM's social responsibility consulting, was quoted in System iNetwork on March 12, 2009, "Companies are being driven to reduce their environmental impact and improve their energy efficiency - their customers and partners demand it, their financial performance depends on it, and governments increasingly require it."

inFORM's product line is broken into two product families and both provide a direct strategic impact on going paperless and thus the green effort:

Document Automation Solutions This integrated suite of solutions to go paperless includes iDocs™ iFormsTM iMail™ iFax™ iPDFTM Document Center, iMapsTM and iView™.

Banking Automation Solutions These products support safe check writing and electronic banking. They include iChecks™ Check-Secure™ ACH e-Payment and PositivePay™.
